GDIPlus Change Quality + Scale

Recommended Posts


EDIT: Since there hasn't been a reply, I assume this functionality is unavailable in current release... or the thread become TLDR. Figured I should do the same as I did for uploading a form without IE, and find a command-line tool. I'm going to use G'MIC. I looked at imagemagick but it had an entire GUI thing and too many files to include. I just need to resize and change the quality :mellow:

I need two functions that should be simple, and I'm very surprised I don't see them in the help file. I just need this capability in it's most basic form, the quality function is very important, the scale is not but could add many features to my program.

Maybe I have overlooked these, but if I knew enough to make these functions here is how I would use them:

$hBMP = _ScreenCapture_Capture("")
$hBMP = _GDIPlus_ImageResize($hBMP, 1024, 768, True) ;True would be for preserving aspect ratio, somehow
_ScreenCapture_SaveImageQuality($hBMP, @scriptdir & "\file.jpg", 95) ; 95 being the image quality

Now these might exist with a different name, but I don't see them.

I used this function in the past but it's old code, there are a few errors when I try to compile and when I fix the errors the include file starts throwing more errors...

Func __ScreenCapture_SaveImage($sFileName, $hBitmap, $fFreeBmp, $iQuality)
    Local $hClone, $sCLSID, $tData, $sExt, $hImage, $pParams, $tParams, $iResult, $iX, $iY

    If @error Then Return SetError(-1, -1, False)

    $sExt = StringUpper(_GDIPlus_ExtractFileExt($sFileName))
    $sCLSID = _GDIPlus_EncodersGetCLSID($sExt)
    If $sCLSID = "" Then Return SetError(-2, -2, False)
    $hImage = _GDIPlus_BitmapCreateFromHBITMAP($hBitmap)
    If @error Then Return SetError(-3, -3, False)

    Switch $sExt
        Case "BMP"
            $iX = _GDIPlus_ImageGetWidth($hImage)
            $iY = _GDIPlus_ImageGetHeight($hImage)
            $hClone = _GDIPlus_BitmapCloneArea($hImage, 0, 0, $iX, $iY, $giBMPFormat)
            $hImage = $hClone
        Case "JPG", "JPEG"
            $tParams = _GDIPlus_ParamInit(1)
            $tData = DllStructCreate("int Quality")
            DllStructSetData($tData, "Quality", $iQuality)
            _GDIPlus_ParamAdd($tParams, $GDIP_EPGQUALITY, 1, $GDIP_EPTLONG, DllStructGetPtr($tData))
        Case "TIF", "TIFF"
            $tParams = _GDIPlus_ParamInit(2)
            $tData = DllStructCreate("int ColorDepth;int Compression")
            DllStructSetData($tData, "ColorDepth", $giTIFColorDepth)
            DllStructSetData($tData, "Compression", $giTIFCompression)
            _GDIPlus_ParamAdd($tParams, $GDIP_EPGCOLORDEPTH, 1, $GDIP_EPTLONG, DllStructGetPtr($tData, "ColorDepth"))
            _GDIPlus_ParamAdd($tParams, $GDIP_EPGCOMPRESSION, 1, $GDIP_EPTLONG, DllStructGetPtr($tData, "Compression"))
    If IsDllStruct($tParams) Then $pParams = DllStructGetPtr($tParams)

    $iResult = _GDIPlus_ImageSaveToFileEx($hImage, $sFileName, $sCLSID, $pParams)
    If $fFreeBmp Then _WinAPI_DeleteObject($hBitmap)

    Return SetError($iResult = False, 0, $iResult = True)

Trying another answer but keep getting the error Autoit3.exe has encountered an error... Is there something wrong with this code? No errors if I just save it as a jpg, only when I add params.

$f = @scriptdir & "\file.jpg"
$q = 75
$hBMP = _ScreenCapture_Capture("")

$TParam = _GDIPlus_ParamInit(1)

$Datas = DllStructCreate("int Quality")
DllStructSetData($Datas, "Quality", $q)
_GDIPlus_ParamAdd($TParam, $GDIP_EPGQUALITY, 1, $GDIP_EPTLONG, DllStructGetPtr($Datas))

$clsid = _GDIPlus_EncodersGetCLSID("JPG")

_GDIPlus_ImageSaveToFileEx($hBmp, $f, $clsid, DllStructGetPtr($TParam))

I hope this is what you asked! If yes, then just create a function where you can do a batch scale of images...:mellow:

Thanks for the reply, that seems to work and I am trying to fiddle with it. I don't understand why there is a need for graphics and also hbitmaps...


Got it to work best using this function, haven't implemented the ability to change width and height yet but you should be able to figure it out with the $h and $w variables. Probably not an efficient way to do it, but it's actually a lot faster than the command line utility.

Will tweak with it some more. I really think there should be GDI functions to just change the width height and quality. :mellow:

func image_quality($file, $quality, $name, $output)
    $hGUI3 = GUICreate("Scaled Down", 200, 150)

    _GDIPlus_Startup ()
    $hImage = _GDIPlus_ImageLoadFromFile ($name)
    $h = _GDIPlus_ImageGetHeight($hImage)
    $w = _GDIPlus_ImageGetWidth($hImage)
    $sCLSID = _GDIPlus_EncodersGetCLSID ("JPG")

    $hGraphic3 = _GDIPlus_GraphicsCreateFromHWND ($hGUI3)
    $bitmap3 = _GDIPlus_BitmapCreateFromGraphics($w, $h, $hGraphic3)
    $image3 = _GDIPlus_ImageGetGraphicsContext($bitmap3)
    _GDIPlus_GraphicsDrawImageRectRect ($image3, $hImage, 0, 0, $w, $h, 0, 0, $w, $h)
    _GDIPlus_GraphicsDrawImageRect($hGraphic3, $bitmap3, 0, 0, $w, $h)
    $tParams = _GDIPlus_ParamInit (1)
    $tData = DllStructCreate("int Quality")
    DllStructSetData($tData, "Quality", 100) ;quality 0-100
    $pData = DllStructGetPtr($tData)
    _GDIPlus_ParamAdd($tParams, $GDIP_EPGQUALITY, 1, $GDIP_EPTLONG, $pData)
    $pParams = DllStructGetPtr($tParams)
    _GDIPlus_ImageSaveToFileEx($bitmap3, $output, $sCLSID, $pParams)

    _GDIPlus_GraphicsDispose ($hGraphic3)
    _GDIPlus_ImageDispose ($hImage)
    _GDIPlus_Shutdown ()
